Hello. My name is Bill and I am a college student in Texas studying to become a teacher. One of my classes is focusing on using technology in the classroom as an instruction aid. I look forward to reading any posts that would be helpful to my future endeavors and sharing concepts and ideas.
Hi. I am a grade five teacher at an International IB-PYP school in Germany. The students and I are currently using Edmodo, Voicethreads and an edublog classroom blog to share our thinking and collaborate with others. The students have opportunities to present their thinking using all sorts of web2.0 tools - glogster, prezi and photo peach are amongst the current favourites.
I'm very keen to connect with people from all corners. If you are looking for a class to buddy up with, I'd love to talk more. If you are looking to talk and share classroom practise ideas, I'd love to talk more. As we begin to prepare for our PYP Exhibition I'd especially like to connect with other exhibition teachers.

I am currently conducting research relating to three series' on Social Media, Transforming Education and Open Education.

a.. TITLE: Globaldreamers peace project
PRESENTER: Marsha Goren, Ein Ganim Elementary (Israel)
SHORT DESCRIPTION: Global Dreamers: Peace Project. The Dream a Dream project
was developed by Mrs. Marsha Goren of Ein Ganim School Israel in 2000 and
first met the Internet in 2001. The idea started as a vehicle to encourage
children and educators to share in a learning environment that would lead to
global communication and tolerance.Â It inspires children to take a deeper
look at the world by exploring, exchanging ideas, and using research tools,
which supports a positive learning environment and a shared learning
experience. Because of the war between Israel and the Palestinians which
began in December 2008, schools were invited to join the peace project. The
children felt the need to express their feelings on the subject together
with many partners around the world.
TRACK: Policy and Leadership
In addtion I would like to add that we are still accepting work for the
fall project and thank the educators for sending us such lovely materials.
Our peace project is ongoing and you are invited to add materials, it is
really a great unit with so many schools including lovely lesson plans,
worksheets, online activities, songs, etc.
Use and enjoy, http://www.globaldreamers.org/10fall/index.html http://www.globaldreamers.org/09peace/index.html http://www.globaldreamers.org/10peace/index.html
